History
Established in the 1800s in Switzerland, IWC has, over time, carved its own niche in the watchmaking industry. Best known for making world class complicated timepieces, the brand is an integrated manufacturer that creates all parts of a watch and assembles them in-house. The brand boasts of making consistent technological advancements and is greatly involved in developing anti-magnetic and anti-gravity movements.
IW391008 belongs to the Portofino Chronograph series and boasts of uniquely designed push-buttons that pay ode to the Italian sports cars of the 1960s.


Design
The IW391008 is a chronograph sporting a round case that is 42 mm in diameter and 13.5 mm in thickness. The case is made in stainless steel with a black dial and a convex, scratch-resistant, anti-reflective sapphire crystal glass. The timepiece is fitted with a black alligator strap and the solid steel case back is engraved with serial number and hallmarking. The solid steel ensures that the chronograph is protected from external wear and tear. It has a fixed bezel made of stainless steel and the strap has a deployant clasp for safe fastening.
 

Features
The timepiece is water resistant to a depth of 30 metres and is fitted with a calibre 75320 engine. It also sports an automatic day and date function at the 3 o’clock position in the dial and a small seconds hand at the 9 o’clock position. The battery is equipped with a 44-hour power reserve and a fluted crown made in solid stainless steel. The case back is screw down with silver toned hands and silver indices for markers. The timepiece is incorporated with 3 sub-dials for 30 minutes, 60 seconds and 12 hour readings respectively.

History
Portofino was a former fishing village on the Gulf of Tigullio in Genoa, Italy and serves as a classic Mediterranean vacation spot for actors and actresses across the world. The quaint little place provided the inspiration for the Portofino family of IWC Schaffhausen in the late 1970s. The watch collection was crafted to provide a classic simplicity which appeared beautifully in the pioneer watch, the IWC Lepine open-faced pocket watch whose dial was turned through 90 degrees and was equipped with a moon phase display.


Features
Highly acclaimed for its stylistic design and myriad features, the IWC Portofino collection has something to whet every watch lovers appetite. The features range from Portofino Chronograph watches with two or three visually elegant complications, to the classic moonphase complication present in vintage collections only. The materials clothing the case include rose gold, white gold and stainless steel with hand-stitched alligator leather straps in assorted colours of black, chocolate, camel and midnight blue. A select few from the Portofino Automatic edition feature an elegant Milanese mesh stainless steel bracelet, keeping in sync with the leisurely charm of the collection.


Events
The Portofino Midsize watch collection was launched as recently as 2014 with lavish fan-fair and gala dinners. Celebrations were held in Dubai at the Ladies only fashion Dinner, showcasing the “Timeless Portofino” and hosted by CEO of IWC Schaffhausen, Georges Kerne and Brand director, Karoline Huber. In Hong Kong a splendid dinner party starring the Portofino Midsize watch collection was hosted by IWC Schaffhausen and attended by many Portofino devotees and friends.
